Moving Forward With A Military Discharge Upgrade

Last updated on June 14, 2024

Does your Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty contain negative information that is limiting your access to benefits and impairing your ability to find a civilian job? A discharge upgrade may be an option.

At Williams Stone, PC, many of our lawyers were in the service before they became attorneys. We have a personal knowledge of military service and the struggles many service members endure.

With decades of combined legal experience, our attorneys understand the process and know how to work through the red tape with the Discharge Review Boards (DRBs) and Boards for Corrections of Military Records (BCMRs).

Let Our Stafford Military Discharge Upgrade Lawyers Guide You

If you believe your discharge was unfair or inequitable, you can apply for a review by the appropriate Discharge Review Board for your branch of the service. In some cases, you may also need to appeal to the appropriate Board for Corrections of Military Records.

It is important to understand that you have limited appeal deadlines unless you meet certain exceptions, so it is important to take action quickly. We can help you understand the process of upgrading your:

  • General, Under Honorable Conditions Discharge
  • Other Than Honorable (OTH) Discharge
  • Bad-Conduct Discharges
  • Dishonorable Discharge
  • Dismissal Discharges
  • Uncharacterized/EntryLevel Separation

Anything less than an honorable discharge can negatively impact your career prospects, affect the education benefits you can receive, impair your ability to obtain security clearances, affect your eligibility for Veterans Affairs benefits and damage your reputation.
